ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia has been ejected from the Angels' game at Texas.

Scioscia went out to argue a play at first base when slow-footed Geovany Soto was called safe on a close play in the second inning Tuesday night. Crew chief Jerry Layne, who was at first base, heard only a few words from an irate Scioscia before tossing the manager from the game.

Layne then stood there stone-faced, appearing not to respond verbally, as Scioscia voiced his displeasure for a couple of more minutes before leaving the field

Soto hit a grounder that third baseman Alberto Callaspo initially misplayed, then picked up and threw to first.

It was Scioscia's second ejection this season.
